Article about: Picked this up from Lakeside Trader. Marked L/56. Can't wait til it arrives.

    Thank you for the insight Norm. I didn't realize there was such a minefield in regards to post-war badges. Kind of sad when you think about it.

    Most of the fakes/post-war ones I have seen are very obvious there was things wrong with them. Almost laughable when you see them advertised as originals.

    Here is an example I found while doing research. It is a Lüdenscheid produced L/56 badge. Note the stamped L/56 and the poor quality of the copy.

    I'll post some better pictures of mine when the badge arrives in the mail.

    Hi grimes,

    Actually, that example you posted from Weitze (attached here) is the "classic" type, and I think that L/56 mark is actually in relief. There's no finish remaining on the numerals compared with the surrounding surface so there's a bit of an optical illusion making it appear like the mark is stamped in. It's a heavily worn example and I'm not sure if the remaining gilding we see there is original, but it doesn't look like a fake.

    Best regards,
    ---Norm

    Weird how it looks almost stamped in those photos. I stand corrected though.
